Wireless environmental noise monitor
The EM2010 Wireless Noise Monitor is designed for medium- and long-term environmental noise monitoring. This unit — manufactured by NoiseMeters — is ideal for any noise monitoring applications that demand a unit that meets IEC 61672 to Class 2 and require access to the noise measurements through a standard web browser. It is ideal for the medium- and long-term noise monitoring of construction sites, mixed industrial and residential areas, road and rail noise, airports and airfields and outside entertainment venues. The noise monitor consists of an outdoor microphone, a small box with the processing unit and a power supply. It can be powered up in minutes by just connecting the microphone and power supply to the processor, says the manufacturer. It comes as a complete package with mobile phone connection already active. The unit will automatically measure the periodic Leq and L90, storing the results internally for up to one year and uploading them to the web server each day. The noise reports are viewed by logging in to a website and selecting the days of interest. The results can be viewed in a tabular or graphical format, or they can be downloaded to Excel (or similar spreadsheet program) to create personalized reports. www.noisemeters.ca.
